It's that time again; you're thinking about dinner and what to cook. Here's our weekly list of suggestions: dinner recipes that take less than an hour of mostly hands-off time or cook quicker then that but may require constant stirring. Yes, there will be pasta, and, yes, it will be delicious. On the weekends, there's more time to try something new or cook something slow. Visit us every week for dinnertime inspiration.

MONDAY: CHINESE CORN-AND-MUSHROOM SOUP

Bryan Gardner

Dinner in 20 minutes? Yes please! Bonus points because this soup is not only fast but also filling and vegan. Customize it to suit your tastes: make it spicier with sambal oelek or try an egg-drop version.

TUESDAY: OAT-CRUSTED CHICKEN CUTLETS

Sidney Bensimon

Bet you never tried this before? Oats are indeed a wonder food and we love them for breakfast, in baking, and now for dinner. Here they make an ace alternative to breadcrumbs for skinless, boneless chicken breasts in a 30-minute stovetop entree. Serve with a simple salad or your favorite vegetable (sauteed broccoli rabe or easy peasy cheesy peas?).

WEDNESDAY: PASTA WITH CILANTRO-ALMOND PESTO

Marcus Nilsson

Pasta need never be boring. Add this new 20-minute recipe to your dinner rotation. It's a fresh take on pesto featuring cilantro and almonds. Leftover roasted carrots and a sprinkling of crumbled feta completes the vegetarian dish.

THURSDAY: PORK CHOPS WITH APPLES AND ONIONS

Jeff Sowder

An easy-going recipe that delivers full-on fall flavor with just a few ingredients. Brown the pork chops, saute the onions and apples, then add apple cider, beer, or wine as a braising liquid. Serve with mashed potatoes or roasted sweet potato wedges.

FRIDAY: ARTICHOKE-AND-SPINACH SKILLET PIZZA

Because Friday? Because pizza? Skillet pizza no less, and with no tomatoes. Press homemade or store-bought crust into a super-hot skillet and top with ricotta, mozzarella, garlic, artichoke hearts, and baby spinach.

SATURDAY: BEEF AND BARLEY SOUP

Let's talk about comfort food; could anything be more cozy than a big bowl of this hearty soup for dinner? The beef is a London Broil cut into small pieces. This easy-going soup will simmer on the stovetop while you tackle all those Saturday to dos.

SUNDAY: ROAST CHICKEN WITH BROILED-VEGETABLE-AND-BREAD SALAD

This is a game-changing recipe: A simple roast chicken with extra crispy skin that's served atop a bread salad drizzled with pan sauce. And oh what a sauce, and oh what a versatile recipe: don't have chard, sub arugula or spinach; don't have eggplant, sub any vegetable from grilled squash to sauteed peppers. Serve this dinner hot or at room temperature.
